MISSED CONNECTION: To the girl who was studying sociology at Starbucks/Chapters (@King/Weber) on the evening of Tuesday March 15. I don't know why I didn't talk to you on that day but I hope I won't regret that for the rest of my life. I've been going back to the same Sbucks everyday with the hope of see you again. If I won't see you again soon, I'll die from caffeine overdose.

  7. which one is describing the MC and which one is describing the friend

    ReplyDelete
  8. They all describe the MC. She is Asian, very cute and wearing two tone glasses. Not sure about the Versa though. The only thing I am sure about is that I can't stop thinking about her and I badly need to have a heated discussion on social structure and social interaction with her before the final:)

  10. Why do you want to find this girl so badly

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I like to exaggerate things a little. I can't really say I want to find her her so badly. See my next answer for instance. But it wouldn't be bad seeing her again, chatting a little about global warming and why starbucks are so full even though their espresso sucks. I don't understand why it is so difficult to find good espresso around here. They are either too bitter or too sour. any idea anyone?

    1. Thanks for the info. I saw the PSA (Prostate-specific antigen?) too late:( Though I was having dinner and probably I would not have moved. Bacco would always beat Venere. The best of course is to have them together "Bacco e Venere", yum.

    2. Could you please tell her that I am looking for her next time you see her?

    3. Has she ever seen you/ know you?

    4. She has seen me but she doesn't know me. I guess what I meant was if you could tell her that someone is looking for her. Though I am not sure how this might help me.

  12. Lol if you wanted to meet her so badly you would've moved

  13. Hey OP, just going to come out and say this. Have you considered what the MC might think of this should she come across this thread? Keeping in mind that if she is studying sociology, she's probably a pretty media literate, socially aware person who could potentially find some of your comments above somewhat off putting. Maybe try for a little bit more class and showcasing some of your better assets instead of a willingness to commit caffeinated suicide for you. This isn't 16th century Verona after all...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am afraid to say that you might be right. She must be pretty media literate and socially aware and we all know that those types hate 16th century Verona. How could I miss that? What's wrong with me? I would love to have some of that stuff you are on right now. It must be fantastic.

      Delete
    2. *Disclaimer* what I'm about to say comes from the fact that I am actually a friend of the MC. Yes, she has seen this thread.

      First off the "media literate, socially aware" comment was a subtle hint that MC can read between the lines. OP, you come across as a juvenile, entitled, desperate individual who is apparently incapable of initiating and maintaining a meaningful relationship through conventional means. I was actually trying to throw you a line to prove that this is not the case ("best assets" comment). Clearly that was missed.

      Secondly, as this seems to have escaped most of you, the Verona comment was a reference to "Romeo and Juliet", a story about two horny teenagers who fall in lust after glimpsing each other briefly, go off the proverbial deep end in their desperation to be together, and end up commuting suicide without any forethought about what could be had they actually used a shred of common sense. While I'm sure you intended to be romantic by professing your profound obsession for MC and implying that a life without her would be meaningless and worth killing yourself through coffee, it comes across as really creepy.

      At the end of the day, and here I invite MC to chime in should she choose to do so, you seem to grasp the basics of what any self respecting, educated, self-aware woman would look for in a prospective partner. Try putting on your big boy pants, be courteous and conscientious of who you're talking to, and offer something more than typical horny frat bro comments alluding to drunken sex. At the end of the day, I'd like to think that you're probably a decent person who may have some quality traits that would be attractive to a prospective partner. Unfortunately, they don't really seem to shine through your posts.

      Best of luck OP!

      PS I can verify that she doesn't drive a Nisan Versa.

    3. Today was a great day. Juve won.(probably the only juvenile thing about me is my love for Juve.) I’ve watched a great movie and loved the main character Jep Gambardella played by one of the greatest Italian actors alive, Toni Servillo. I’ve driven around listening to some great music too. Oh I’ve been a bad boy again and drank some beer too. However, today was not much different than other days. I am living the leisurely life and I thoroughly enjoy every second of it. That is just to say , I have no intention to kill myself for a girl or for anything else for that matter. Actually I often say “one life simply is not enough for me”. I’ve even made a video of it. It is on youtube. Just search “una vita sola non mi basta” and enjoy.
      Second, I cannot kill myself with coffee. I am immune to caffeine. I grew up with coffee. Kids here drink milk, we drink coffee. I often drink tea at Sbucks because I can make better espresso at home. In fact I won’t be exaggerating if I claim the best espresso in town is at my place. That is, in my original post I was just trying to say that I go to starbucks too often just to see MC. English is not my first language (it is my 4th) and perhaps it sounded creepy because I still have a poor command of English. It is still hard for me to find the right words to say what I want to say.
      Third, I did not think one needs to read between the lines of my posts. Yes, perhaps I could have said wine instead of Bacco and women instead of Venere. But I don’t think you need to be media literate to understand what I was saying. Most people I know would know the saying “bacco tabacco e venere riducono l'uomo in cenere”. How true!!! Ok, saying I prefer wine to women was one of the biggest lies I’ve ever said. It is true that wine beats women when it comes to aging but you don’t need to worry about that right now . It is also kind of true here in KW. Good wine and good food are rare commodities in KW, beautiful women, on the other hand, are abundant. I stand behind what I said about wine+women. I did not mean drunken sex but good wine with a company of a beautiful woman is unbeatable. If it is off putting so be it. I won’t lie or try to be politically correct.
      Having said all those I believe I am a decent person with certain short comings. I am a little on the hedonist side. I love what life offers and try to enjoy them as much as possible. However, I won’t make a good prospective partner and I have no intensions to become a partner of anyone including MC. In fact I prefer this stays purely platonic as I am sure I’d lose my interest if it doesn’t and that would be the end of a nice thing. People enjoy looking at La Gioconda for centuries without sleeping with it, right?
      Posts on forums, email or similar media are really poor forms communication. You should not say things or come to conclusions that a person is juvenile, desperate, horny or even bro. How do you even know that I am a man for God’s sake.
      Anyways, as far as I can see (from far) you are all good girls and you’ll grow up to be great women one day. Until then, good luck in your finals and in life.

      OP
      p.s. probably everyone could understand that you were referring to Romeo and Julliett when you said 16th century Verona but I guess no one understood why. Good job there.
      p.s.2. after your exams watch the movies I’ve referenced in this post if you haven’t already with some Rochefort 8. You can thank me here later.

      4. It's ok that your friends were fooling around. I had fun ,and also, perhaps thanks to them I could reach you.

    2. Buddy, I'm really sorry if I hurt your feelings for a girl like this. Look at the caliber of the guy she chose over me. I mean we are talking here about a guy who claims he has an exhaust pipe:) I still don't think that I am creepy but you could say I am an idiot and you wouldn't have been wrong. I apologize again if I broke your heart.

      p.s. Though I still think you should read Elster's Sour Grapes especially if you are studying social sciences. It is not very accessible but if you can understand it's a great book on the philosophy of social sciences. If you won't read the book at least read Jean de La Fontaine's The Fox and the Grapes. You'll benefit from it tremendously if you contemplate about it.

      Upwards and ownwards.

  20. Dear single celled life form! Trying hard is not a bad thing. That’s how you achieve things in life. You should try harder too. You may not be getting too far with that single cell you have but don’t ever give up. Don’t forget persistence is the key.
    p.s. if you are media literate and can read between the lines I’ll suggest you start your journey to become a more conscious life form by learning something about yourself first. Run to the library and get a copy of Elster’s “Sour Grapes: Studies in the Subversion of Rationality”. Good luck.

  21. Hi everybody! I'm with the NOT SINGLE Ms. Nissan Versa drinking her amazing Starbucks espresso ;) As it turns out, like Romeo and Juliet, (except the death part) we were meant to be together. We've known one another for a couple of years now, and this forum was what finally gave me the guts to ask her out. In fact, I asked her out in the "business and entrepreneurship" book aisle by the bux.

    We've been very happy for the last week and I feel like this creeper needs to back off my new girlfriend. Or...you will feel the wrath from my exhaust pipe! (now that I type that...it sounds a bit dirty) So...yeah...back off... :p

    Anyway, the moral of the story is this: She's MY car...you can't ride in my car.

    Sincerely,

    - Regular at King and Weber

    p.s. I also love the glasses and cute smile :)

  22. Hey mitochondrion (or cazzo di mio). Regardless whether you are the bearded idiot that keeps laughing at his cell phone or 70 years John (who is a regular at king and weber), I don’t understand how can a mitochondrion like you can (who calls her my car) get her. But since you could, you deserve every bit of her and she deserves every bit of you including the wrath of your exhaust pipe. I’ve already mentioned here that I never considered this tardona (being a media literate won’t be enough here, you really need a native Italian speaker to understand what I mean) as a prospective partner so you do not worry about me backing off.
    Anyways you two are the most interesting thing that has happened to me during my short time here so I wish you lots of happiness.
    p.s. I’ve said all these but isn’t it her friend who owns the f… Versa?
    p.s.2. I never liked her glasses. I think she should change them. But I truly love her potbelly and her long chin. I won’t be able to forget that chin. I really like her, damn.:)

  25. Guys I’d like to apologize for the above message. I should not have called you things like mitochondrion, cazzo di mio or tardona. I guess I was bitter and a little drunk. So, I apologize. Don’t get me wrong, I still don’t think you are a decent guy (I mean who thinks his girlfriend is a car to ride and talks about wrath of exhaust pipe!) and I still don’t think Starbucks espresso is any good but as they say de gustibus non est disputandum. Anyways I wanted to end things on good terms. I wish you lots of happiness. Finally since you have a car fetish I thought you’d enjoy Cronenberg’s 1996 movie Crash. Check it out.

  26. 1. Can we just talk about how this guy responded to EVERYONE except for the post where the MC herself replied.

    2. You talk a big game with your "media literate, socially educated" brain but your science is SO WORNG AND SUCH A PISS OFF. Please stop with the inaccurate, unintelligent, uneducated science disses.

    3. 1. I did not make any science jokes. Hence I am not sure what science I've written is wrong. I used some as an insult but I apologized already for all. But it is true that I am all over the place.
      2.I am saying this for the last time. I do not care who drives the Versa. It can be you, it can be MC or the exhaust pipe guy. It makes no difference to me.
      3. Please remember that it's not me who claims to be media whatever.
      4. Finally and the most importantly I really don't see how all these matter anymore given that MC is in a relation with the exhaust pipe guy and I've already said I am backing off. So please stop provoking me anymore and let's all forget that any of this has ever happened.

  30. I am really sick and tired of all this. My last entry here was 26c. I thought I made myself clear already in there but I'll repeat it again: I really do not want to play along anymore. To be honest I am a little scared of MC's friends. What did I do to deserve to hear things like "wrath of my exhaust pipe" or go suicide and dank italian poem before or pseudo-intellectual creep, stalker (which is another good movie by the way. Where exactly did I imply I am an intellectual? I am the exact opposite of an intellectual. Maybe I like cinema, well-traveled and can speak a couple of languages (and I know math). That's all. I am a very simple guy. Moreover I've referred to most of those things so that MC can recognize me when she sees me. That was my intention. But I do not want to meet MC or anyone around her. So please stop harassing me and focus on your exams instead of wasting your time here trying to insult me.

    OP, I know you have good intentions but by replying to all the comments you are also fueling everyone else's flames.
    That being said not all the comments made above were from friends of mine, in fact only 3 posts were made by my friends.

    If you see me in Starbucks and want to say Hi, by all means do it or don't do it I don't care. this will probably be the last time we speak because I'm not gonna bother with checking this post again
